Subject: Powerful and Heartbreaking Melodrama
Lillian Gish's performance will break your heart! The lead characters are exquisitely fragile, just like flower stems, and beautifully realized. The film gets off to an oh-so-slightly slow start in China, but once the scene shifts to America, you'll be hooked. The closet scene is really harrowing, even by today's standards. Favorite moment: Lucy's reaction when Cheng Huan gives the abused girl her first doll. The print is in surprisingly good shape. "Broken Blossoms" is as fine as, or better than, a lot of films being produced today.

This movie is also available on this same site on an earlier page. There are a lot of repeats as the page numbers go up. It would be great if the administrator of this web site would clean out the duplicates. Anyway, this movie is worth 5 stars.
